Nocturna: new album ‘Of Sorcery and Darkness’ out in April.

Nocturna will release the new album ‘Of Sorcery and Darkness’ on the 19th of April.

The sophomore record of the band founded by the formidable frontwomen Grace Darkling and Rehn Stillnight – featuring the Frozen Crown / Volturian / Be The Wolf mastermind Federico Mondelli as songwriter, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist – was recorded, mixed and mastered by Andrea Fusini at Fusix Studio; Rehn Stillnight took care of the delightfully grim artwork and illustrations.

After the success of the 2022 mesmerizing debut album ‘Daughters of the Night’ (which mixed gothic-symphonic and power metal elements, alternating between fast & heavy neck breaking episodes and intense, piano-oriented ballads), Nocturna once again delves into the meaning of the term “duality” and all its more morbid connotations.

The romantic inspiration of the lyrics of ‘Of Sorcery and Darkness’ combines harmoniously with the band’s sophisticated sonic approach, and the celestial voices of Grace Darkling and Rehn Stillnight paint mysterious and sensual portraits of an ancestral time (yet so close to us).

It’s a solemn, sinister and never so lost paradise.

‘Of Sorcery and Darkness’ will be released in the following formats: – digipack CD / – vinyl LP / – digital
